How does one go about selling song lyrics? (Without them being ripped off, that is.)


I wrote a poem that turns out would be better as lyrics to a rock or jazz song, and I'd really like to hear it set to music. I can almost hear Garbage (Shirley Manson) or even a sassy Ella Fitzgerald-type song as I read it in my head... Some strong female vocalist. Is there a venue for such things? How do bands get lyrics and vice versa? Maybe this is a stupid question.

    Thanks, T.T.! I don't mean to make a career of it or anything, but it just happened to turn into a song (needing melody). Thanks much for your encouragement! I hope somybody sets your words to a tune soon--how cool that would be! Good luck!
